A RESPONSE, TO SENATOR AHMED SANI YERIMA, OVER HIS REPLY TO HIS CRITICS, CONCERNING HIS SUPPORT FOR THE CHILD MARRIAGE LAW IN NIGERIA.
you do not need to help a family by taking away their young girl as your wife. You can bless them and create the paradise you mentioned without using the daughter as an object of exchange.
If, in your search for young girls, all you have come across are serial fornicators; girls who dis-virgin themselves behind the toilet(I find it difficult to believe that you went that far to look for girls but, I realise some perverts do worse things than that;)girls who accept 500 Naira for sex; girls who go overseas to prostitute(I guess you encounter these when you patronise red Light districts abroad?)Undergraduates who service your type (colleagues)in government and girls who abort for 2,500 Naira, then, unfortunately you must be a very wayward person who does not have responsible friends that raise up their children properly!
The good girls are found in good homes. (You can find them in both some Christian and Muslim homes among others,) not in the awkward places you have mentioned and have been searching for them.
Furthermore, don't you think such girls should have a say in whom they marry? As much as you don't want a girl someone else has touched as a wife, the innocent child may not want someone as unfair, or, as selfish as you, who has denied her the freedom of choice.
Besides, it is our business because the ill-gotten wealth you have acquired from government quarters could be used to lure young girls into marriage before they are in the position to know what it is all about.
And, as regards the Jinn, (which I guess is a demon) that you talk about, I think you should take a look in the mirror again to know where the jinn really lives!
Finally, just to add Mr Yerima, Goliath in the bible boasted more than you but his head was knocked off by "little David" when all the other so called warriors failed to respond to his boasts and confront him in battle. The stone that will knock off your wicked head has been selected and is waiting to be slung. Just continue trying to harass the nation with your hopeless rhetoric!
Thank you. - Concerned Citizen
BELOW IS SENATOR YERIMA’S LETTER
THIS IS PURPORTEDLY SENATOR YERIMA'S RESPONSE TO HIS CRITICS ON THE UNDER-AGE CHILD MARRIAGE LAW
SEN. AHMED SANI YARIMAN BAKURA REPLIES THE CRITICS OF EARLY MARRIAGE
Nigeria has many uncountable problems and none of them is early marriage. As a matter of fact early marriage is the solution to about half of our problems. For those who wonder if I can give my daughter(s) out in marriage at the age... of 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and it’s not your business.
This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind, Muhammad (PBUH). In Islam, marriage is not only about sex, it is about family and helping one another in achieving
their goals, which is the attainment of Paradise. In Islam, a girl can be given out in marriage as early as 6 years old, but consummation of the marriage can only be done when the girl becomes physically
mature and she gives her consent to it because unlike English law, it is not permissible for a man to rape his wife in Shari'ah Law. So what can anybody tell me?
I live in a city where young girls at the age of 12 have already became serial fornicators and cannot count the number of man they've had sex with. I live in a City where primary school children dis-virgin themselves behind toilets on Valentine day.~ I live in a city where young girls flood the street at night looking for men that would give them N500 to have sex with them. I live in a city
where parents send their daughters out overseas to prostitute and send dollars down.
I live in a City where Government officials pick undergraduates from University car parks with Coastal Buses to wild sex parties. I live in a city where abortion is so common that even a
Chemist shore owner can perform abortion with just N2,500. These are your daughters, and
this should worry you and not Yerima's private matters.
So ask me again why I support early marriage and I will slap the Jinn out of your head.
